## What did Julia Robinson Discover in math?

Excelling in the field of mathematics, Julia Robinson (1919-1985) was instrumental in solving Hilbert’s tenth problem—to find an effective method for determining whether a given diophantine equation is solvable with integers.

## What was Julia Robinson known for?

Robinson was the first woman to be elected to the mathematics section of the National Academy of Sciences, the first woman to serve as president of the American Mathematical Society and a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship.

**What did Julia Bowman Robinson do?**

Robinson was the first woman to serve as president of the American Mathematical Society, and was also the first woman mathematician to be elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, in 1975.

**Who solved Hilbert’s 10th problem?**

Hilbert’s 10th problem, to find a method (what we now call an algorithm) for deciding whether a Diophantine equation has an integral solution, was solved by Yuri Matiyasevich in 1970. Proving the undecidability of Hilbert’s 10th problem is clearly one of the great mathematical results of the century.

## How many years were Katherine and Jim married?

60 years

James died of an inoperable brain tumor in 1956 and, three years later, Katherine married James A. “Jim” Johnson, a United States Army officer and veteran of the Korean War; the pair were married for 60 years until his death in March 2019 at the age of 93.

## What do you mean by Hilbert’s 10thproblem?

Diophantine sets In these terms, Hilbert’s tenth problem asks whether there is an algorithm to determine if a given Diophantine set is non-empty. The work on the problem has been in terms of solutions in natural numbers (understood as the non-negative integers) rather than arbitrary integers.

### What did NASA dedicate to Katherine in her honor?

A spacecraft that will be heading to the International Space Station has been named the S.S. Katherine Johnson in honor of the pioneering Black NASA mathematician and West Virginia native. Northrop Grumman announced Wednesday their NG-15 Cygnus spacecraft was named for Johnson in celebration of Black History Month.
